    Which Headers Should I Get

    I am looking to buy some headers and want to know which ones have been PROVEN to give the most HP increase and best sound. Which brand etc. do you recommend? **Keep in mind I live in California and they need to be compatible with the smog regulations.

    Sadly now demodded :(

    Only shorty headers with an EO tag are legal in Cali. No LT's, no mid's, and you can't move the cats either.

    Ya I know, Cali sucks. I have been looking at the JBA shortys, do they have an EO tag?

    Longtubes or go home. Unless you are deciding between lontubes with 1 7/8 or 1 3/4 the hp increase isn't there.
    Going back to stock every 2 years ain't so hard.

    Dude, I'm in LA and was scared for about a year and a half. Then said F it and threw on some Kooks LT's. Cops dont give a shit and I did the install a week after Reg. was due. I'm good for 2 years now, BUT, all I gotta do is go to a "friend's shop" and my car passes smog.

    Don't waste your $$ or time on shorties. But to save some face with the cops if I'm ever busted, I put some hi-flow cats on my custom Y. Made the car sound way better and hopefully the cops will see that I still TRIED to comply with the law. (a friend of mine tried the same thing and the cop let him slide thinking it was stock.

    I am considering Kooks, SW or Pacesetters for mine in the future. New Era looks pretty good to me.

    I agree. Just buy what makes you happy and reinstall stock manifolds when inspection day comes...
